We parents tend to get sucked into the seasons. There is a lot to organize and accomplish throughout the fun vacation. Traditions exist this time of year, from decorating the house or trimming the tree to preparing all the annual crafts and dishes. But even Santa deserves a winter vacation from the rush of stuffing stockings, baking cookies, and wrapping presents. There are lots of ways to plan some quality time over the remaining portion of winter vacation when the holiday sparkle fades. Even kids need to make use of this time before they get back to studying and waking up early every day. That said, we’ll show 11 awesome ways to make the best out of the winter break, so keep reading.

 

Finally, Visiting Makkah? Packing Tips For Umrah!

 

 

Explore the city

 

On weekends, you may not have time to go out with kids and show them around the city. The two-day weekend is hardly enough for visiting family and the sports club. So why don’t you take this chance to go with your kids to new different places and show them around? They haven’t probably seen the citadel, Mohamed Ali’s Mosque, Abdeen Palace, and other historical places. You may also want to visit different streets (not necessarily historical) like Al-Moez Street, Al-Azhar Mosque, Korba, and the like.

Trace the dots

 

Look up and download some free printable coloring and tracing pages for your little ones. Buy some crayons or colored pencils for your kids so that they can draw and color and not be bored. They can trace the dots all day or color their favorite superhero pictures. This activity is great for younger kids or those who actually love to draw and color.

 

Ice skating

 

Although it’s winter, ice skating is still one of the most thrilling activities you can do during the winter break. Whether you choose Ski Egypt in Mall of Egypt or Snow City in City Stars, your kids will enjoy this experience. There are different packages depending on what your family would like to do, so choose what suits you best. There are also other skiing places in Giza and Cairo that you may want to check out as well.

Family movie + popcorn + hot chocolate

 

Some days, you may not have the energy (or money) to go to the cinema and eat and drink while watching. So why not prepare homemade popcorn and hot chocolate and make the perfect family movie night? Choose an appropriate film for the entire family to watch so that every member of the family enjoys their time.

 

Winter staycation

 

There are many winter destinations you and your family can go to during the winter break. You may want to book a hotel in a warm city like Aswan, Sharm El-Sheikh, or Hurghada for a week or so. You may also travel to a tropical country if you can afford it to have the kids swim and have the best time before going back to school.

 

DIY crafts

 

Take the kids to the craft store to get supplies, set up your supplies, and get creative. Parents can join in on the relaxing fun alongside the children! Put your phones away for the evening and start thinking creatively. These crafts could be Christmas Tree ornaments or other random things that wow the children. They’ll be super proud once they repurpose something and use it differently. They’ll feel like true inventors and they’ll be excited to share their creations with their classmates as soon as they’re back.

 

 

Create a bear den

 

Although a "bear den" is built similarly to a family fort, it has a different function. Cover the interior of the "den" with blankets and cushions, and take this as an occasion to explain hibernation to your youngster. To conserve energy, they can stuff toy kitchen wooden food into their shirts and curl up in the cave with their stuffed animals for a quiet moment or nap.

 

Board game night

 

Indeed, gaming is the main entertainment of today's youth. However, those games are almost often played on a large screen. Take a night off from technology and gather the family around the table to play some classic board games. Regardless of the kids' age, there are a ton of options this year, ranging from card games to classic favorites like Risk, Cluedo, Twister, and others.

 

A family scrapbook

 

Make your own family scrapbook and fill it with memories of the unique times you shared with your loved ones in 2023. Each moment or memory can be represented using hand drawings, magazine photographs, clippings, stickers, photos, or other decorative materials. You can arrange your collage of pictures or graphics according to a subject or as a timeline. There are countless options! Take some inspiration from Pinterest. Just search "scrapbook ideas."

 

 

Morning bike rides

 

While you’re trying to keep the kids busy and entertained as much as possible in the winter break, you can also benefit from some exercise. Morning bike rides with the kids are fun, entertaining, and beneficial. Not only will you have fun as a family, but you’ll also stay healthy and may lose some calories if that’s your target. Make sure to wake up early, but not as early as school days.

 

Make funny videos together

 

It's usually preferable to approach children at their level. Spend a fun-filled evening taking pictures and videos with the children. Try out some silly picture applications, build your own DIY photo booth with all the amusing costumes and props, or even organize a competition to see who can produce the funniest facial expressions. Your teenage children may likely want to use this break to create the newest TikTok video. Join a trend or game with them, pick up a new dance, or simply support their ridiculous notions.
